A Member of Parliament (MP) from Nyandarua County on Monday, October 3 lost Sh700,000 to armed robbers in Nairobi.
The MP was carjacked on Waiyaki Way in Westlands and driven to Karen, where the suspected criminals made away with his Sh700,000 in cash.
Police said the lawmaker was heading home after a night-out at a popular nightclub on James Gichuru Road.
The MP, in his statement to police, said three armed robbers flagged him down on Waiyaki Way, gained forcible entry into his car and drove him to Karen, where they stole the money that had been stashed under the driver’s seat.
During the journey, he said he was confined to the rear passengers’ seat while blindfolded.
